A day for Daisy's

Came across these a couple miles from home at a little strip

shopping area so I stopped and snapped a few.


All of these images were shot with the Nikkor-P.C 1:2 8.5cm Nippon Kogaku Japan, a lens that was designed and introduced in 1948/49 and had various runs through 1964/65 end of production. The original couple of runs of this lens bore the 'MIOJ' mark of "Made In Occupied Japan". That's how old this lens design is. The serial numbers of the various versions jump all over the place so I can't really be sure when my lens was manufactured. My guess would be its well into the latter half of the production runs.

It never ceases to amaze me how a lens designed just about 70 years ago can function this well today, being very usable on some of the newest digital cameras made and still take pictures like these.
